This bhn tv app is great for iPhone or iPad only if you are sitting on the toilet..I have a freaking tv in each room of my house,,what's the point of the app? Why is it only on the HOME NETWORK? Give me a break please!!! Anybody else agree,,, I want to watch my channels at the airport in the car or outside the house,,,comeonnnn.

you're in the wrong forum, you want a slingbox.

I disagree with you. this app is useful for what it is. I have a tv in every room as well, but sometimes I like to live on the wild side and fire up the iPad and watch another channel. Or watch in the kitchen. Or on the patio. And yes, even on the toilet. If i'm away from home I have DVR service to watch it later.

@bhn.net

Unfortunately about 99% of people agree with me,,have you read the reviews/comments on the iTunes AppStore for this app?,everybody wants this app to be used outside of their house/home network ,,who watches tv on a patio anyways when you can watch it on a 60 inch + tv,,,Lol,, people want to watch their premium/movie Channels that they pay for away from home,,,hotel room,airport,clubhouse,,etc,,,,Just sayin

Then take your beef and tell it to the folks in control of the content....the content owners. We can only do so much...you want it faster...there is where you start .... just sayin

Gary, of course I'm not privy to the contract or contracts you have with the 'content owners' but I don't see the rational here?

ESPN, HBO, and MAX GO don't care where I use it, as long as I am a subscriber. What is different with the other content owners (ESPN, HBO, and CineMax being ones on BHTV too)?

What it the difference to them if I get it via my MAC addresses modem or another one? If were to use the SAME MYBRIGHTHOUSE ID to access BHTV, Why should they care where I am? Let the app pass my ID onto the delivery server and if my account is active, send the programming. Why should it care?

What is the difference from me Video Taping (VHS) and going to another house to play the tape? They don't seem to care or have anything that says I can't do that?

I just don't understand that logic.

As a BHN representative here can't you bring that message back to 'them' and maybe get a logical answer we might understand?

Irv please...each content owner has their own rules...we do nothing but rebroadcast the content. I'm not gonna argue with you folks about this. We would love for you to be able take it anywhere...but it isn't our content and we don't make the rules as to how it's viewed, recorded, rebroadcast and all the other things associated with.

Perhaps a logical explanation is that they don't want one person to give out their login credentials to a bunch of their friends and have a dozen people who aren’t paying for the content piggyback off of one person who actually does.

Actually that's one of several I'm sure...again we don't make the rules there...we are just the method of transport and even then it comes with restrictions.

The list of support devices has been updated to include the iPod (thanks Jeff) and also the additional Asus tablet. If you discover additional devices not shown please let me know right away...be sure to include a photo of the app working on your device so we can identify it. Thanks!

who is the 99%? Again, slingbox is the answer to this. it's not up to brighthouse anyway, as you've already been told. I like to watch tv on the patio, when i'm ready to go inside to watch tv (on a 50 inch) then I will. I dont want to watch tv way from home, because i'm away from home doing other things. i guarantee that if they even considered this you're going to pay more for it.

just sayin

I just did, and not "everybody" agrees. (most of the complaints are about it not loading)

This has a very simple solution, if you like it....GREAT, if not, uninstall, move on. Everyone seems to have the wrong idea about the true concept of the app

Have you tried them? Although only ESPN is 'live tv', and the other are not, all can be watched anywhere (where I've tried at least) there is a wi-fi (I only have an iPad wi-fi) connection, hotel room, daughter's house, airport, etc. As long as I've signed in with my Brighthouse MyServices ID and p/w they work.

I would assume they have the technology to tell when 2 or more people are using the same ID too and shutting someone out so multiple people can't use the same ID but it may not be the case because only one person 'owns' the BH bill and gets the MyServices ID, never tried making one for my wife for instance, but when I do open either app it shows as logged on most of the times, as sometimes I do have to log on.

In any case if I can use it anywhere, that is good.

It's a bit more complicated than that. I have run through a ton of different methods for dealing with folks that cheat and none are entirely easy to implement. Eventually a solution will come though....that you can be sure of

1% of the comments are about the app not loading and the other 99% are about the app only working on the "home network" as far as I remember dish network or directv has the ability to watch their tv shows anywhere,,im not sure if its one of them or both of them,,but as usual brighthouse and twc don't allow it,,,go figure....

I am sure most people would love it to be the app that they could take away from home. However currently there is no such app because the content providers, not the app makers, want the cable companies license to stay for home broadcasting only. Every instance of the station being taken outside of the home has been handled per station and by that stations own app.

Belive you me, the day, the hour that the stations agree to a new contract that allow the cable companies to provide a feed to its customers outside the home, a tiny switch (filter deleted I should say) is all that needs to be thrown for the app to go global.

Oh we are ready and hopeful for that day And its more of an update to each App but still an easy thing relatively speaking...there will still be some entitlement issues to work out so people can't cheat and share with their neighbor who doesn't have cable but that's all in the details.

Bernie it will take time I won't lie and there is probably some frustrating moments before we get there. I really need you guys to trust me when I say we're on the same page but others we have to make happy (content owners) not so much but times are changing and we will get there.

I have an HP Touchpad with CM9 alpha 2 ICS installed. I successfully installed the application,.but I cannot find a way to disable the root status required to put the new operating system on the tablet. This situation is very disappointing, as the application says it cannot run on a rooted device.

You could try downloading OTA Rootkeeper. It can temporarily disable the root while you use the app.

Yea, I belive it just looks to see if you have super user status, so find a way to toggle that and you should be ok.

Upgraded my phone today to HTCs evo 3d (running ICS), app works great on it.

And your device is not rooted right? If so please provide us with a screenshot of your phone running the App so we can add it to the list.
